What Is Facebook?
Facebook is one of the growing online social media networking websites which is used for sending messages, sharing posts and status. Apart from sending messages, people use Facebook as an advertisement platform for promoting their products and services. It was founded by Mark Zuckerberg, along with fellow Harvard College students and roommates Eduardo Saverin, Andrew McCollum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes.
A Facebook account mostly locked or blocked due to suspicious and malicious activity that happening on your account which may be done by you or someone else deliberately or unintentionally. As Facebook becomes the most popular social networking site, people use it for their business purposes. Facebook ensures the proper security of the account so that no one can misuse the account. If they found any kind of suspicious activity on your account, it locked your account immediately. It has both advantages and drawbacks. From the point of security, it is very good. But sometimes real users also face this issue which is really a very frustrating scenario. Sometimes user frustration is really high.
